The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking launches its 5th annual call for proposals
The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking launches its 5th call for proposals worth €150 million to support research and demonstration activities in innovative energy technologies
The FCH JU public private partnership with a total budget amounting to nearly €1bn to be invested by 2013, publishes its fifth annual call for proposals today. With € 77, 5 million, to be matched by in-kind contributions from industry, research organisations and possibly national funds, the FCH JU confirms its dedication to accelerate the market entry of fuel cells and hydrogen technologies. Recognised as able to contribute to the decarbonisation of transport and energy systems, to a more efficient use of energy and renewables sources, as well as to increased energy security, these technologies have the potential to sustain EU competitiveness and job creation in the face of fierce competition from US, Japan Korea and China, in these technologies.
